‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Cancels Its Premiere In New York City To Help Out Hurricane Harvey Victims

I wasn’t planning on watching ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle,‘ but I think I have to after hearing about what they did for Hurricane Harvey victims. Earlier this week, Twentieth Century Fox announced that the sequel’s upcoming premiere in New York City has been canceled.

The premiere was scheduled for September 12, which is the same night of the Hurricane Harvey telethon.

 “Given the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey and the important fundraising efforts happening on Sept. 12, we have canceled that evening’s planned film premiere event for Kingsman: The Golden Circle. To that end, Twentieth Century Fox Film will be donating the money budgeted for the premiere to several of the non-profit groups associated with the telethon.”

That’s pretty freaking cool. They did not have to do that. It’s a smart human/business move. Plus, it’s not like this was the only premiere event planned. They have a screening scheduled at Alamo Drafthouse, a college screening series and the world premiere in London on the 18th.

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters Sept. 22, and I will most likely be buying a ticket now. Check out the trailer for the film below…

When ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service‘ was released back in early 2015, it kinda surprised everyone. It wasn’t expected to be a huge hit, but for some reason the audience really connected with it.

It grossed over $414 million worldwide, which made the director Matthew Vaughn extremely happy. It was his most commercially successful film ever. Even the critics enjoyed the spy-action comedy. It currently sits at a comfortable 74% on Rotten Tomatoes.

And with all that success (especially the delicious $414 million total) you had to know there was going to be a sequel.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle released its first trailer this week, and it was definitely worth the wait. It’s hard to make a great trailer, but the studio nailed it with this one.

Both Taron Egerton and (surprisingly) Colin Firth have returned for this sequel. They are joined by Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore and Halle Berry.

You can check out the official synopsis and trailer below. It’s scheduled to hit theaters September 22, 2017.

“With their headquarters destroyed and the world held hostage, members of Kingsman find new allies when they discover a spy organization in the United States known as Statesman. In an adventure that tests their strength and wits, the elite secret agents from both sides of the pond band together to battle a ruthless enemy and save the day, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.”
